Chit Policy

Procedure for LCC Members

Leaside Curling Club extends credit or chit-signing privileges to members as a courtesy. Chit privileges can be used at the LCC bar or at curling clubs that honour chits in the greater Toronto area. To remain eligible for these privileges, members must abide by the following policies and procedures:

1. Members can register for chit privileges by completing a chit application and submitting it to the office.

2. Members must provide an active credit card number for their file. The credit card information will only be used if you choose this as your preferred method of payment or if the invoice is not paid by the due date (see information in items 3 and 4 regarding due dates).

3. When using chit signing privileges, members must clearly indicate their chit number and they must clearly print their name beside their signature when signing at other curling clubs.

4. Invoices for chits will be distributed on the 28th day of each month at the club. These invoices can be found in the chit box at the bar. Invoices will also be distributed by e-mail to all members whohave provided an e-mail address. The invoice will not contain the chit but a copy is available in the office if you wish to cross-reference your invoice.

5. Members can choose to have the invoiced amount applied to their credit card or they may pay by cash or cheque. This choice is made when signing up for chit privileges or by notifying the office board of directors by e-mail or in writing.

6. Full payment is due on the 14th day of the month following the invoice. Cheques must be made payable to Leaside Curling Club.
• For example, if an invoice is issued on the 28th of November, payment is due on or before December 14.

7. If the invoice is not paid by this due date, the full amount owing will be automatically charged to the member’s credit card, and a $5.00 surcharge will be applied to the invoice.

8. If the member’s credit card is found to the “inactive” for whatever reason, it is the member’s responsibility to inform the office LCC board of directors and update their authorization form. Failure to update will result in a $5 surcharge applied to the “re-issued” monthly invoice.

9. Chit accounts from the previous year must be paid in full before a returning member is allowed to sign up for a new season of curling.

Service Charges

10. A service charge of $5.00 will be applied by the office to each monthly Leaside Curling Club invoice.

11. Additional charges may be applied by the other clubs extending the signing privileges. By using your LCC chit privileges at another club, members are agreeing to the other clubs’ service charges.

Procedure for Non-Members
12. Chit privileges will be extended to visitors of Leaside Curling Club if they can demonstrate that they have signing privileges from their home club.

13. A service charge of $1.00 for each chit used will be applied to the non-members’ invoice.

14. The LCC board of directors will not be responsible for administering chit privileges for non-LCC members. The City of Toronto Leaside Curling Club staff will collate chits, generate an invoice and communicate with other clubs as needed.

FAQs for LCC Chit Service Charges
1. Each time a chit is used does that generate an invoice?
A: No. All chits received by the board of directors between the first day of the month and the 28th day of the month will be applied to a single invoice. Only one $5 service charge will be applied on the monthly invoice.

2. Will additional service charges by applied by the curling club I am visiting in addition to the monthly $5 charge?
A: Yes, additional charges will probably be applied. Members using LCC chit privileges should be aware that service charges may be applied at the curling club they are visiting. These charges vary from club to club and the LCC Board of Directors does not control the amount charged. Members should be aware that by using your LCC chit privileges at another club, you are agreeing to pay the charges that are applied at the club you are visiting. Members are encouraged to inquire at the club they are visiting to understand the chit charges that will be applied by the club.

3. Can I use my chit privileges at the LCC bar?
A: Yes. You can use your chit privileges at the LCC bar. Please note that the $5 service charge will be applied if a chit is used only once per month or if it is used every time the member is in the club over the course of a month.

4. Why do you need my e-mail address to register for chit privileges?
A: An e-mail address is required to facilitate communication about monthly invoices and to ensure you are receiving your invoice. Former chit members in good standing without e-mail addresses will be exempted from this requests.

5. If I choose to automatically pay by credit, will I ever incur a late charge?
A: No. As long as the credit card you have provided for your file is in good standing, you will not be charged any late fees, because your card will be billed monthly.

Day Women's Rules

Leaside Curling Club
Day Women Section
General Rules Monday/Tuesday 2015/16 (updated April 2015)

All players are asked to be on the ice by 12.55p.m., so that the game may commence no later than 1.00p.m. A warning bell will be rung at 2.55 p.m. to signal that the end of the game is near.  Finish only the end that you’re currently playing.
** Same rules apply to morning games: 9.45am start, consider warning bell is 11.45a.m.

An end is considered to be started, only if the 1st rock thrown is in motion.
Please adhere to the bell rule as laid out by the Games committee.

1. Teams will be composed of a minimum of 3 players. In the event of a three person team, the first two players will throw three rocks each and two rocks will be thrown by the Skip. At least one member of the team must be present to play the game. All games are played on the scheduled date.
2. Prior to commencing a game a Vice-Skip or a designated member of either team will flip a coin. The winner of the coin toss has the choice of the hammer (last rock) or choice of rock colour.
3. A game consists of eight (8) ends, but a team may concede after six (6) ends, if both teams agree to end the game. The winning team will be awarded by the Draw Master, 1 End & 1 rock pt., per end(s) not played, within the game allotment (based on 15 minutes per end). Exact time must be recorded on the score sheet.

1. The scores will be recorded as: Win=5pts; Loss=1pt; Tie=3pts; Default=1 pts.
2. In the event of a blank end, each team will record ½ point.
3. The winning vices are responsible for recording the scores and the exact finishing time on the score sheet. Confirmed verification of scores & signatures of both vices is necessary.
4. At the end of each draw, ties for 1st; 2nd; or 3rd place will be broken by:
1. end count
2. rock count
3. point differential
4. coin toss
5. There will be no playoff games & in any one game the maximum point differential will be +10/-10.
6. In the event that there is an uneven number of teams in a draw the scoring will be prorated.

A game is defaulted when:
1. a team has no original members of the team
2. a team has only 2 players (1 being an original member of the team). Unless the 2 Skips (offending & non-offending) agree to share players and score the game as played. In the case of a defaulted game, the offending team will receive 1/0/0/-5 points for the game loss; ends; rock count & point differential The non-offending team will receive the score of 5/5/5/+5 for the win.

Spares will be acquired only through the designated Spare Co-Ordinator of each draw. Do not arrange for your own spare. Spares must be used from the available spare list. When the spare list is depleted, the team will then play with 3 players. It is at the discretion of the team to decide where the spare would be best played.
